JJ Kissinger

Director, Side-by-Side

Born and raised in the great state of Colorado, moved to the PNW where I studied at Seattle Pacific University (2002) and Regent College in Vancouver (2011).  I love a good chocolate chip cookie, I make a mean guacamole, I binge-watch shows like it’s my job, and I live in the ritzy and exclusive hamlet of Shoreline with my wife, Lisa, and our daughte,r Jane. It’s a privilege to serve families through Side-by-Side!

Marla Malone

Associate Director, Side-bySide

I have been part of UPC since college and love this season of caring for families and volunteers through Side-by-Side. There’s always another party or event to plan and oodles of opportunities to creatively celebrate life in the midst of challenges.
